Linus Pauling: And I worked on the structure of nucleic acid, but not hard enough as Watson has
pointed out in his book, The Double Helix. I'm not sure of this, he says I didn't work hard enough. He says I wasn't smart
enough to do the job. The developments since the discovery of the double helix by
Watson and Crick have been astounding. And these were, of course, based largely on
the x-ray photographs that Rosalind Franklin had made in London of the fibers of nucleic
acid - DNA.
